Many years ago I gave up on that rather lame habit of incessantly checking the news to see what was stirring in the world that might be of prophetic import; for I have since then been of the opinion that the long-prophesied events (and the imminent Chastisements that will precede them) will burst onto the world scene suddenly and unexpectedly — so much so that, when I hear of the worldly fretting about some looming threat, I usually think to myself “ah, well, this isn’t it. Not yet.” But I decided to deviate from my norm today, now that I have been relentlessly hearing about Coronavirus from every corner of my purview and its effects are even beginning to influence life here in New York. I was confirmed in this decision to so deviate when I saw the following as today’s top stories on Google News:
Seeing that Italy is now seriously involved in this potential pandemic immediately inspired me to see what Luisa’s writings had to say, if anything, about this. And indeed they did have things to say.
On December 29, 2019, the first cases of Coronavirus were officially identified. Two days later, the outbreak in Wuhan was formally announced. But exactly 93 years earlier (to the day), we read the following in that day’s entry in the diary of the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta:
…[Jesus said:] “This Sun is my Will – hold It tightly, never let It escape you, for It has the power to convert you and all your acts – everything, into light, in such a way as to incorporate you completely into It, forming one single Sun.” Then, afterwards, I was thinking about everything that my sweet Jesus had done in His coming upon earth for the Redemption, so as to unite myself to His acts and ask Him, for love of His own acts, to make His Will known in order to let It reign. … [and Jesus said:] “See then, how much this Kingdom of my Will cost; with how much love I developed It within Me. Therefore, this Kingdom exists – there is nothing left but to make It known, so as to let all the goods It contains go out into the field. …” After this, my sweet Jesus escaped me like a flash, and I wanted to follow Him, but, to my highest bitterness, in that flash I saw that contagious diseases were to come, which will spread almost in all nations, not excluding our Italy. It seemed that many were dying of it, to the extent of depopulating homes. In several nations the scourge would rage more strongly, but almost all of them will be touched. It seems that they hold hands in offending the Lord, and Our Lord touches everyone with the same scourges…
—December 29, 1926. Luisa’s Volumes.
I included more context from the quote than just the prophecy of contagious diseases because I am not a preacher of doom and gloom, as some “Eschatologists of Despair” are today who reject the imminent Era of Peace — I will always strive to remind all souls that the coming storm is a prelude to clear skies, therefore when we see the storm approaching ever closer, we should not grow afraid, but excited. This is not flippancy; it is faithfulness to Our Lord’s own words:
Contagious disease, in particular — though a frightening scourge indeed — is closely associated in prophecy with the renewal of the world. Jesus also told Luisa:
“There will be a general uproar – confusion everywhere. I will renew the world with the sword, with fire and with water, with sudden deaths, and with contagious diseases. I will make new things. … All will be humiliated, and peace will come only from Me. And if you hear them say ‘peace’, that will not be true, but apparent. Once I have purged everything, I will place my finger in a surprising way, and I will give the true Peace. Then, all those who are humiliated will return to Me…There will be great triumph and union among peoples. Therefore, pray…”

On June 21, 1923, Luisa described a vision she had as follows: ”I saw as if contagious diseases were to come, and many people were carried to leper hospitals. A general fright was reigning, and many other maladies of new kinds.”
While we do not speak any longer today of literal “leper hospitals,” they are nevertheless essentially the same things as what we have seen repeatedly over the last month: entire cities (or cruise ships!) turned into quarantined quasi “leper hospitals,” with great human rights violations occurring within them (above all, in China). Interestingly, a recent NPR article made exactly this point. One also thinks of the huge hospitals built practically overnight earlier this month in China, specifically for the sake of this disease.
There are many other prophecies of contagious diseases in Luisa’s writings, but let me turn to other prophetic sources.
Many people may remember that Fr. Michel Rodrigue — whom I think is indeed an authentic prophet; scroll down on my post from last year to see his prophecies –said in 2019 that God told him that, come February 2020, he was not permitted to travel outside North America. That seemed strange to hear. Suddenly, it makes perfect sense and, I think, should be taken as a further argument in support of his authenticity.
Luz de Maria — a seer who has both approval and a strong endorsement from Bishop Mata of Esteril — reported the following message on February 16, 2020. Although this message cannot yet be considered “prophetic,” as it was given after the outbreak of the disease, future events may well change that:
“You look with a little concern at what is threatening humanity: AN ILLNESS THAT HAS MUTATED, YET SOON YOU WILL FORGET IT without attaching any importance to it, and forgetting the preventions, the disease will spread everywhere. Most of the children of Our King and Lord Jesus Christ live moment by moment, they do not persevere, they soon forget, and this is what leads them to fall into the clutches of evil.”
Pedro Regis, a seer who enjoys the support of his Bishop, has many prophecies of impending epidemics. In 2005, he was told that a “famous city will be deserted. An epidemic will cause many of its residents to flee, and the rest will die,” “Mankind will carry a heavy cross because of an epidemic,” “Man has prepared his ruin by his own hands. Clever men have gotten together and prepared destruction in a laboratory. Man will see death in that which exists to give life,” “A mysterious disease will arise. From the sand it comes,” and, in 2006, was told “Mankind will carry a heavy cross. A disease will come, worse than all those that already existed. Men will be contaminated and millions of cadavers will be spread everywhere.”
In an excellent recent post, Mark Mallett quotes another seer who appears credible and posts messages on the website “wordsfromjesus.com.” This seer has prophesied not just disease in general, but has prophesied specifics that seem perhaps to refer to the present Coronavirus outbreak. I present Mark’s quotation and commentary here, although I recommend reading his whole post:
There are so many other relevant prophecies, but instead of presenting them, I would prefer to end this post now, because I think I have said enough to justify my inspiration in writing it: namely, to encourage you to immediately go out and buy thousands of face masks and buckets of hand sanitizer and then lock yourself in your room!!!
My inspiration in writing it is, of course, as usual, to be the broken record that I am: the long-prophesied events are coming very soon. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and love your neighbor as yourself. Forgive and seek forgiveness. Frequent the Sacraments. Pray the Rosary. Remain always in a State of Grace. Proclaim the Divine Mercy to all those souls less spiritually fortunate than yourself. Live in and proclaim the Divine Will. Do these things, and you haven’t the slightest thing to fear — continue going about the duties of your state in life well.
